Tysons Corner Pets Up For Adoption: Meet Tamale, Salsa, Alfredo & More

Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to…

Do you want to add a new member to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Adopt a dog, cat or other kind of pet from a local shelter or organization! Amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many facilities are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

Across Virginia, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — and many of them are located not too far from you. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for a new friend is at 4paws Rescue Team, where Alfredo the cat is waiting patiently, or another local shelter. If you aren’t sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed in permanent homes.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a cat person, meet Tamale, a Domestic Short Hair up for adoption. Or if dogs are more your thing, there are several great dogs available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
